Hi there

Coming form an Oracle world, UDF's are very restrictive and tend to be a half cocked effort. I have this sneaking feeling that MS is not expending much effort in t-sql (ie. where is proper exception handling! which is fundamental to any language). Not being able to use temp tables, call stored procs etc is a right pain and makes the functions useful for only the basic operations.

I personally believe UDF's was a last minute add in that tends to highlight MS push to the .Net version of sqlserver where stored procs etc can be in VB, C#, C++ etc that are much more feature rich.

Anyhow, good article all the same Smile

Cheers

Chris

Coming from a Sybase ASA world, I find UDF's absolutley invaluable.

Pity they can't do everything but ......!

The article served as a nice primer, thankyou
